Communist California’s Governor Jerry Brown has backed off of his commitment to send National Guard troops in response to President Donald Trump’s call for more border security. Now, Trump has a savage response to Brown. You won’t want to miss this.
On April 11, 2018, Democrat Governor Jerry Brown pledged to send 400 National Guard troops in response to Trump’s call for 2,000 to 4,000 from the border states. Brown made that commitment via a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and Secretary of Defense James “Mad Dog” Mattis.
The letter from Governor Brown indicated that he would send the 400 troops to help in an ongoing program to combat transnational crime. The troops authorized by Governor Brown were to help support law enforcement operations against transnational gangs, drug smugglers, and human traffickers.
Governor Jerry Brown’s letter did not specify how many of the 400 new troops were to join the 55 guardsmen already stationed on the border. “The location of Guard personnel — and number specifically working in support of operations along the border, the coast and elsewhere in the state — will be dictated by the needs on the ground,” a spokesperson for the governor’s office told Daily Caller in an email.
Like most things that come out of California, Governor Brown’s pledge was worthless. The crap hit the fan on Tuesday, April 17, 2018, after an official from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection named Ronald Vitiello told reporters that Governor Brown was no longer interested in sending troops.
“The governor determined that what we asked for is unsupportable, but we will have other iterations,” Vitiello said. This is huge flip-flop on Governor Brown’s part which is not only an embarrassment to the people of California but also to our country. It’s truly a shame when a governor won’t support federal efforts to make our country safer.
Governor Jerry Brown originally indicated that he would support the deployment of National Guard troops to the border as long as they did not involve themselves in supporting immigration enforcement efforts. That alone is a tragic point of view for any elected official to have, but that is the sad state of affairs in Communist California.
It didn’t take long for President Donald Trump to jump on Twitter and hammer Governor Brown with a brutal response that he truly deserved for backing out of his pledge to send 400 troops, according to the New York Post. What kind of governor makes a fool of himself on such a grand scale? It would have to be Brown.
“Looks like Jerry Brown and California are not looking for safety and security along their very porous Border. He cannot come to terms for the National Guard to patrol and protect the Border. The high crime rate will only get higher. Much wanted Wall in San Diego already started!” Trump wrote.

The blatant unwillingness of liberals in our country to secure our borders and keep out illegal immigrants is something our Founding Fathers would have never imagined could happen. California is the only border state to refuse Trump’s request.
The Republican Governors of Arizona, Texas, and New Mexico have already answered the call for troops in the honorable fashion one would expect from state leaders. The majority of California’s ultra-liberal leadership is all on board Brown’s crazy train, and they are greasing the tracks.
Governor Jerry Brown’s refusal is a tremendous disservice to the citizens of his state and to our country. There was a time when cowards like Brown would be run out of office and shamed into hiding. Unfortunately, those days are over until the people paying the price for such destructive policies decide they’ve had enough.
The economic consequences and higher crime rates caused by mass illegal immigration will continue to plague California, and the fact of the matter is that Democrats thrive in such conditions. In order for their political model to work, the population must be brought under government control through the brutal removal of their sovereignty.
